Rezension zu "Pulled (Torn Book 2)" von A.F. Crowell

Def. Better than the first book
pieggyvor 4 Jahren

The Book:

This book is the 2nd one in this series and should better be read after the first part as it´s not a standalone. The story continues where it ended in book 1.

This time the book was written mostly in Leila's point of view. But it also shows the ones by Jaxon and Brody (although Brodys parts/ views were limited).

The story:

Leila Matthews finds herself in a situation no woman would want to be in- pregnant with the child of a man who dumped her just after he got the news. Heartbroken, Leila asks Jaxon, the man Brody hates, for help. Without hesitation Jaxon does what he´s asked for and not only this- from now on he´s always at her side, helping and taking care of her and the baby. With time their friendship turns to love. But then, when you plan your future and thought you are happy, everything changes. Not only one but both man give Leila a hard time and when she was hurt and left alone again in a time when she needed love and support the most, Leila has to think about what´s best for her and the baby. And because that´s not enough she finds herself in a whirlwind of emotions and feelings.

What has caused Leila to be unhappy again? Why and who hurt her? Will she be able to forgive? Why was she forced to go and to stay in the hospital? Why is she so confused about her feelings for Jaxon and Brody? Which man will she finally choose?

And again- I won´t tell. Read this book if you want to find out :D

My Opinion (Spoiler):

This book was soooo much better than the first. It really felt like the authors writing style improved with the second book. I loved reading this book and if it wouldn´t have been 2 am then I probably wouldn´t have stopped reading until I finished it. 

The pace of the story wasn´t, instead to book one, too fast. It was exactly right in my opinion.

I honestly don´t think that this book had much I didn´t like.

There are just two things I hate:

1. I hate t o wait for book 3. Half a month is too long to wait and I don´t want my love, I currently have for this book/series, to lessen until then. I hate waiting :P

2. I hate that I still can´t decide if I´d rather see Leila end up with Brody or with Jaxon. I love both guys. Both are assholes from time to time and have their flaws obviously but Jaxon was so sweet, loving and caring and Brody- he´s never been in love before and even before they knew about the pregnancy, he could imagine to spent the rest of his life with Leila (He gave her his mothers jewellery, which was meant for the love of his life). And after he realized that he´s lost her and tried to win her back, he was also very caring and sweet.

Really I can´t decide which guy I like more. I just hope the author isn´t killing one to give the others their happy ending. That would suck. I hope there´s a way for everyone of them to be happy, although I have no idea how that´s possible...

Argh I want books 3 asap and find out :D

The Book:

Luckily I´ve won this book at My Smut Huts Facebook page and received the eBook through the author.

The book is written from two different point of views- the views from both main characters of the book. One of them is Leila Mathews, a trauma nurse and the other is Brody Davis, a wealthy man who works (not only) in real estate.

The story:

Leila Mathews is at work when the patient she was supposed to help turned her world upside down. She´s worried and she´s scared but she doesn´t want anyone to see her break down. She wants to be strong in front of anyone else, even if she isn´t. For years she´s trying not to get too close to anyone, not to get hurt and now this situation, involving Leila's most important person in her life, threatens her walls to come down and to hurt her more than anything. Never would she have imagined to meet a stranger (a very handsome and sexy stranger), she´s instantly attracted to, in a situation like this. It turns out that this guy, called Brody Davis, is a friend of her brother and even though Brody has the reputation of being a womanizer and of hooking up with women all the time, Leila lets him distract and help her. Not long and they´ll find themselves in each other's arms and falling in love. But can they both overcome their issues and fears? Will they be able to continue a relationship, although they have no or barely experience in having one? And what is with Leila's brother and what is it about Jaxon, who looks like to be stalking Leila?

Well- I guess you have to find out yourself :D I´m not going spoil the story to you.

My Opinion (Spoiler):

I liked the story. I didn´t really loved it ( :( ) but it was good. I couldn´t fall in love with both main characters and I didn´t felt the chemistry between them. It got better with continuing the story and I hope that I finally love them with the next part of the series.

For me, the pace of this story was really fast. Within a week in that story, so much happened already for both. Like- Bam, bam, Bam, Bam. They go here, do that, do this. So for me it was a bit difficult to warm up with the characters. Also because I´d rather have read more about them spending time and speaking with each other than reading about the surroundings.
It could just be me but, although some lines had me grinning (especially those between brother and sister), conversations they had felt sometimes a bit unnatural. I´d rather have a change of her and him speaking than one speaking a lot of sentences at once.

Although I haven´t read much about nurses, I didn´t find the rest of the story quite original (sorry). Some things reminded me on Shades of Grey. It´s not identical of course but... I don´t know...I can´t really explain. It´s just like I´ve read sth. similar to it before (Not the whole book, just scenes). I also wished to have more drama in this story. Drews part was kind of unspectacular in my opinion, probably because of the pace. He was shot, then ok, he had a bleeding, he was ok, the end...

I loved reading about Ruger. Him wanting to protect Leila is so adorable. I love dogs and I honestly was really surprised when I read all those German words. I had no idea none-German people would use them. And now while writing this review I´ve been thinking and thinking, but I don´t remember a book right now in which I read about characters interacting with their pets. So that´s definitely a plus for this story.

As I´ve said the story got better with the ending. I´m curious about the next part. I love it when pregnancies and babies are in stories. I want to find out how they handle this new situation and if Jenifer goes all crazy and if Jaxon turns out to be a freak or nice guy. Guess some of my questions will be answered in part 2 :)
Thanks again to the author and My Smut Hut to giving this book away. :)
